ORDER AND SHIP EARLY! Orders may require longer lead times due to post-pandemic shipping and industry-wide supply chain challenges.

Order And Ship Early!

A massive increase in online shopping and residential deliveries has created record-breaking shipment volumes for UPS, FedEx and USPS. They can't keep up with demand. This can add days to production and delivery times in some instances. As your partner, we are committed to providing you with the best possible experience and service. Planning ahead allows Staples Promotional Products to help you meet your desired timelines. If you have large orders and tight deadlines, please call customer service for extra planning and attention.

On-time delivery could require longer shipping lead times, so order early!

  • Delivery of in-stock orders may be delayed due to longer shipment transit times
  • Custom orders may be subject to double delays. Inventories may take longer to reach decorators. Once decorated, shipment to the customer can take longer too
  • Paying for expedited services no longer guarantees on-time delivery. Shippers have discontinued their “money-back” delivery time guarantees for the foreseeable future

Plan & order early!

While Staples is working with suppliers and freight carriers to secure priority processing, delays cannot be mitigated in all cases. Shipping carriers do not know when shipping volumes and capacities will normalize. We will keep you informed as volumes and shipping times improve.

Have a mandatory in-hands date?

Share it with customer service! They will know the best options to ensure timely delivery.

Order early if you can!

Build a few extra days into your timeline just in case.

Driving Traction at Tradeshows

03/21/2019 industry_insights

Tradeshows are important events for any organization to attend.

They bring people together through the bonds of complementary business goals, allowing new relationship sand networks to form seamlessly, often resulting in big rewards down the line. In fact, the ROI in attending tradeshows speaks for itself. But, what you may not have known is that approximately 99% of marketers said they found unique value at tradeshows that they did not get from other marketing mediums. Tradeshows are a great opportunity to interact and connect with customers, partners and prospects within similar business avenues.

So, by now you’ve probably realized that the benefits far outstrip the costs when it comes to tradeshows and you’ve officially decided to attend one. What next?

It’s time to start ideating on ways to draw people in to your booth at the tradeshow. You want to create a spectacle, generate some buzz, so to speak, but the competition for attention on the floor is fierce.

Keeping people interested means keeping your booth lively. One way to do that is by offering distinct promotional products, possibly through guided competitions or giveaways. Likely many other vendors will think to bring branded merchandise, but if the products offered at your booth are both unique and useful, you’ll get the impressions to match.

To stand out from the clutter of the tradeshow floor, you need to produce a stand-out experience for your visitors. And promotional gifts aren’t the only way to do this. Think booth design, booth placement, eye-catching advertising and more. You could sponsor a specific event or host a training session. Even having your attendees in noticeable, professionally branded company attire can bring your name equity at the event.

With the right preparation and creative, branded solutions, you'll be the star of the (trade)show!
